General Appliances was founded in 1972 as General Repairs and Sales.
Owner Simon Leenstra operated the business in various locations in Lacombe up until 1993, when Peter and Trudy Kuipers purchased the operation at its main street location.
In 1999, the owners decided to expand, selling the downtown store and building a much larger showroom at the current site.
In 2008 Peter and Trudy handed the reigns over to the current owners (their son Gary Kuipers, son-in-law Kurtis Dykstra, and employee Jason Siebenga.)
At that time General Appliances expanded again to accommodate a wider selection of luxury appliances and increased their service department to accommodate the needs of an expanding clientele.
Currently, the General Appliances showroom is still located at 6010 Hwy 2A and a 10,000 Square Foot warehouse was recently built in Lacombe to accommodate more inventory.
Our Service team consists of 2 of the expert Service Technicians(Lambert “Lumpy”, and Rod) one Apprentice Service Tech (Ben) and our service Co-ordinator Denise.
In-Store operations are handled by Kurtis, Gary, James and Danielle.
The Delivery Department is operated by Owner Jason Siebenga. Jason runs one of the delivery trucks and looks after training each of our delivery men making sure that our entire delivery department is always acting in a professional manner and offering an industry-leading level of service.
